Came here with a voucher which got me a bento/ramen and a shared side dish. I had a tempura bento and the food was beautifully presented. Not all the tempura was as crunchy as I'd expected, but apart from that I enjoyed the lunch. The gyoza we had as a side dish was delicious.

Good Japanese restaurant with a good menu. The food is fresh and tasteful. Only a bit expensive, but the quality is outstanding.

The restaurant interior looks great and feels really Japanese. I have been in Japan 9 times so I know what the quality standard should be concerning Japanese food. We had wakame salad, edamame, unagi rol, teriyaki salmon, two nigiri of salmon and otoro tuna, ebi tempura and a dessert with Creme Brûlée and two sorts of ice-cream (black sesame and... More

We treated our selves to another special night, this time we were. Lucky to have found this Japanese restaurant. Staff and cook were very friendly and helpful as we are beginners in Japanese food.

I had a dinner at Hosokawa and I really enjoyed it (against expectations, Amsterdam is plenty of sushi restaurants and the quality is average). I am not usually a big fan of sashimi but this one was melting in my mouth: taste and quality. Nice presentation also. Meat perfectly cooked. Next time I would love to try the Teppanyaki. Minus:...

Everything is okay, but not what I was expecting how it was. Not very much to say about and not very special.

Popped in on the off chance to see if we could get a table as this restaurant had been highly recommended to us! Warmly greeted by a colleague (think maybe the manager) with a very pleasant manner who got us booked in for that evening! On returning we were warmly greeted again and made two lovely G&Ts.

The interior is very nice looking but the "cooking at the table" Teppanyaki causes large amounts of fatty smoke to permeate any and all cloth or paper in the restaurant. Don't plan on going to a bar afterwards as you will most definitely smell of cooking oil and fried food. The food was very good and the service was quick... More

This place is on the expensive side but it is my favorite place for special occasions. Actually I look forward to my birthday or my wedding anniversary to enjoy a lovely dinner here. Both sushi and teppanyaki are great experiences. The staff has an incredible attention to details.
